Chewing The Fat (Episode #111H)

KQED Plus: Thu, May 28, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

Woody's barbershop collection is second to none. The old barbershops could be found all across America with their distinct barber poles, lush chairs, and sharp razors, which are all on full display in this episode. In the old days the barbershop was a social gathering spot to get a haircut, a shave and ramble on about current events, sports, local politics or whatever else passed the time.
